The procedure for establishing class size, schedules and staffing of teachers as well as ensuring a positive educational environment began in February with the course selection process. Teachers, administrators, counselors, students and parents collaborated on students’ course selections through the Spring Semester. Schedules are now finalized and changes from one course to another will not be considered. Students may, within the same class period:

1. Add a first semester course to an existing study hall or lunch by Monday, September 21, 2020.

2. Add a full year course to an existing study hall or lunch by Monday, September 21, 2020.

3. Add a second semester course by Monday, February 8, 2021.

History of The Henderson Warrior

Dear Henderson Parents and Students,

I have always been extremely proud to be a part of the Henderson Community. It is a community that strives to be inclusive and embrace diversity, while remaining connected to our traditions. Perhaps one of the proudest traditions is our mascot, the Warrior. Over the summer, our administration took an in-depth look at this tradition. We wanted to learn more about the history of the Henderson Warrior, its association with Native American Indian Iconography, and how it is perceived through the lens of inclusiveness and diversity.

We had several conversations with students, staff members, community members, and alumni. We connected with faculty at West Chester University and the Chester County Historical Center. And, perhaps most importantly, we spoke with Native American Indians.

Interestingly enough, our research did not show how the Warrior became affiliated with Native American imagery. Through our research, we concluded that students, staff, community members, and alumni favor keeping the Warrior name while removing Native American imagery.

Please click here to view a video and learn more about our research regarding the history of the Henderson Warrior.

Using iconography that marginalizes a race of people is not a practice that we should continue. It has never been our community’s intention to deliberately offend anyone. We plan to work with the student body to create new imagery that is not offensive to Native Americans or any other race or religion. I look forward to working with the student body to re-brand our Warrior imagery, which we all can wear proudly. Go, Warriors!


Dr. Jason Sherlock
Henderson High School Principal
